Tiff, you never know!  She might find a SDC relic for you at a yard sale.

I was there once in late January to check out the condo that I later bought.  It was fun!  Nearly froze to death at the hotel we stayed at bc. the heat in our room was turned on before we got there, and the rooms on each side had no heat!  Brrrrrrr!  Took until the next morning to get warm.  But, it really was a good time.  Saw the ice sculptures at the Titanic, took photos of historic buildings w/o crowds in the pics, walked the landing a few times (and always got a window seat!), hit up the bookstore, and a movie.  Oh, and saw a few local bands in some pubs, and recognized some faces in the bands that were in the big shows during the normal tourist season.  Would be happy to do it again if I could find a three day weekend.

Nice weather in January and elementary kids aren't a good match learning.  After about 150 "Is it recess time? yets, and after-school reading, I knew my Times would be waiting for me -  :D

 NOT!   :(

Seriously??? Two goat heads?  I would send him out to locate the rest of the goat and lock the door behind him.  I have a friend who wants to go antiquing every time she's in town.  When she's ready to make a deal, we (incl. my dh and hers)  all head to the car - it's embarrassing to be around her.

I didn't get my times either! :(  Those bubble things were popular at PTO school functions a few years ago.  Kids love them.  That would be kind of cool at SDC as I'm sure they could do it up right!  Much better idea than...bubbles to the left ~ bubbles to the right.

Good idea, Ozarks Gal.  Don't forget to iron that paper first to remove those wrinkles.

Yes, both locations in Branson are now closed.  I agree - I enjoyed eating there.  It was a nice place to walk to after fishing the public docks on Taneycomo.  We would sit outside, and oftentimes, they had live music.

Yep, that's the same Shorty Smalls at the end of the landing by the boat dock.

Mutton Hollow used to have a pie shop called Aunt Parthene's.  I loved that place!!  I bought a hand woven rug from a big craft shop there years ago.  That rug looked as good as the day I bought it after hundred of washings.  In fact, it was GREAT! until the contractor picked it up during cleanup and it was never to be seen again. :(  I don't think I have any photos of Mutton Hollow.

Just waiting for that initial feeling of excitement as I hit the turnstile! Coffee and bread pudding at Delilah's, the smells from Wagon Works, and finding a spot on the bench to listen to Danny Eakin and the Pickers.  Bliss!

P.S...and the whooshing of roller coasters in the background, the splash from American Plunge, asphalt, the color green, the smell of pork rinds, and well,...everything else!

DollarCity, I'm with you.  More than anything, I wish for the AP tunnel to be brought back to its finest.  I can't imagine that it could cost that much to refurbish.  It's the small change that I notice the most.
My bucket list:  - Refurbish the AP tunnel
                     - Dump the visible soda machines
                     - Keep the craftsman (dh's suggestion - and mine)
                     - Death to the basketballs and airbrushing
                     - Return of ALL the skillet dinners and offer at reasonable price (Dh's suggestion)
                     - Leave the woodcarvers in current location (again from DH)
                     - Get rid of obnoxious timeshare pitch and Humana signs that ruin good photos
                     - More street shows
                     - Return the Hatfield/McCoy dispute
                     - Offer fish dinners at Owen's Fish Camp instead of burgers and Philly Steak Sand.
                     - Offer the wedge of cheese at Mine Rest. and put on menu at the vendors
                        (Dh's suggestion)  I told him not to hold his breath on this one!
                     - Hire me as Education Director!  I have some great ideas - Readers Theatre, Turkey Tango, old fashioned kids' games during Kids Fest, take advantage of National Science Day - that's all my secrets I'm willing to reveal!) :)

Happy New Year Everyone!!  Yeah, I like that Apple Butter reconstruction idea, too!  Enough said!
